“Providing learners of Business English with relevant language tools for everyday use”
Only knowledge that is used sticks in your mind” Dale Carnegie. Learners of Business English tend to squeeze English lessons into their busy schedules and have very little time for self-study. The key to success is providing them with the language they really need to use and the tools to enable them to use the language immediately and confidently. In this session, we’ll be examining a number of tools now available to enable them to put their new-found knowledge into practice.
Each participant will receive a copy of Business Result Upper-Intermediate Student’s Book.
